First of all, cool! glad it worked!

Secondly, use the code tag. Wrap stuff in [code]

Code:
like this
Finally, you probably want to start a new thread about the firewall. That's a big topic and probably deserves its own space.

It definitely requires setup. Some people like to say that it "makes you do everything yourself" and other people say it "lets you do everything yourself".

In truth, though, I think most people's goal is to get to the point where they set it up once, and then never set it up again. I mean, sure we upgrade our system, but we script the setup stuff so all we do is upgrade, and then run our personal setup scripts so everything is how we like it.

The alternative is to let someone else set it up for you, which is what most other distributions do. That works great for some people, but for me I find myself going back over everything and changing stuff. So to my mind, why not just set it up myself in the first place?

Anyway, you seem to be catching on quickly, so who knows, maybe you're a slacker whether you like it or not :-)
